This rescued pit bull can't stop smiling (literally)

Is Brinks not the happiest dog you've ever seen?

Meet Brinks, a 13-year-old pit bull. He was abandoned as a puppy on the streets of Brooklyn.

See photos of Brinks:

"Apparently he had been left at the school playground the night before by somebody," Jon Bozak, Brinks' rescuer, told The Dodo.

"He was never mistreated. Somebody just decided to give him up. My neighbor told me years later that he had seen Brinks wandering that night, " Jon said.

The next day, Jon met Brinks. It was love at first sight (or smile).

"I was like 'This is crazy, this dog is grinning. This is nuts.' I didn't want another dog. I figured another 65-pound pit bull was going to be a lot to handle. But Brinks was too awesome to be true," he said in the interview.

We can't get over that cheeky smile!
